 "I feel that MD Anderson should continue to set the bar for trainee research awards and stipends in order to continue to recruit the top candidates in the field of cancer research, as well as to maintain a high level of research within the program."  -Sarah Dunlap Smith, Ph.D.

 "As the first steps in the transitional phase of my research career were crucial prerequisites to successfully start a young research team, the work supported through you will have a lasting impact on my academic development. Being a recipient of such an award also developed a sense of appreciation towards organizations whose members spend significant efforts in such career development programs." -Marco Herling, M.D.
